For decades, community groups and nonprofit organizations throughout the Northwest have worked to advance equity and justice for LGBTQ+ communities in every corner of our region. Our Community Grants Program helps fuel this work through providing consistent, long-term funding.
Since this program’s inception in 1987, we have awarded nearly $12 million dollars. Our most recent award cycle in 2021 was the largest in Pride Foundation’s history—$1,834,000 to 105 incredible organizations over two years.
In 2021, we shifted to a proactive grantmaking model for this program, and began awarding funds without an application process. These programmatic changes were intentional shifts to center racial justice in our work, improve the experience of grantee partners, and align our grantmaking with our organizational priorities to move resources to LGBTQ+ communities most impacted by injustice.
As Pride Foundation’s only multi-year grantmaking program at this time, our next Community Grants Program award cycle will be the summer/fall of 2023. You can sign up for our email list to receive notification of the new grants cycle at that time.
